Leoni designed a number of houses including Queensberry House, Burlington Gardens, London (1721—an important prototypical Palladian town-house), Lyme Park, Ches. (c.1725–35), Argyll House, King's Road, Chelsea, London (1723), Clandon Park, Surrey (c.1730–3), and Alkrington Hall, Lancs. (1735–6). All had borrowings from Inigo Jones and Palladio, but he was not a purist, and there is more than an echo of the Baroque in his work, suggesting a position closer to that of Gibbs than of Campbell. It is arguable that he was more influenced by than influencing British architecture.
